- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 6+ months – interviewed at Research In Motion.Interview Details
Generally ok , but they need to look into their candidate screening process.
I did not apply for that position( I submitted my resume for another completely unrelated position), The HR called me first and I had no idea what the job was about, but she said I was a good match and asked me to come in for an interview.
During the interview I found out what the hiring manager wanted and I don't have the necessary skills at all, and I simply asked the guy why I was selected for an interview, since nothing in my resume suggested I could do the job. He was puzzled as well and we guessed that HR probably had a mix-up. So we shook hands and said goodbye, and I just counted this as a whole day wasted on a trip to Waterloo in heavy snow.
However, after about three months, the SAME HR person left me a voice message, it was for an interview for the SAME position by the SAME manager. And another three months later, while I was in a conference call someone from RIM called me again and I simply rejected the call.Interview Questions

Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
Research In Motion (RIM), a global leader in wireless innovation, revolutionized the mobile industry with the introduction of the BlackBerry solution in 1999. Since then, BlackBerry products and services have continued to change the way millions of people around the world stay connected.
With the launch of BlackBerry® 10, we have re-designed, re-engineered and re-invented BlackBerry. Not only did we introduce a new mobile experience to our global community of BlackBerry users, but we are also introducing a new name for the company.
